Lavender is one of the most nostalgic and romantic fragrances. Originally from the Mediterranean, these plants are now grown all over the world. The leaves are long and narrow and vary in color from blue/green to grassy/green.
At Serenity Lavender Farm the lavender flowers dramatically rise above the plants on spikes, in shades of blue, violet, lilac, pink and white. Lavender is much more than just a pretty plant. It is one of the most powerful herbal remedies. It offers both physical and emotional relief for problems as varied as burns, migraines, insomnia, insect bites, stress and anxiety, aching muscles, cuts and acne. Some people even report better pain control, digestion, circulation and respiration.
Lavender is also very popular in cooking and can be found as an ingredient in many top restaurants around the world. Lavender lends a floral, slightly sweet and citric flavor to most dishes. For most cooking applications the dried buds or fresh flowers are used, and the leaves can be used as a substitute for rosemary.
